Riot Games has released an album of copyright-free music for streamers to use. 

The 37-track album is titled Sessions: Vi, and it gives streamers music to play without fear of copyright strikes. Riot Games has made the album available on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube. The move comes as game developers are working around Twitch’s current limitations. 

Cyperpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED included a special streamer mode that removes all copyright-restricted music from the game. That’s because Twitch warned streamers about incoming DMCA strikes as the music industry clamps down on copyright violations. Twitch told creators it had over 1,000 DMCA notices for mostly archived video content, or VODs. 

Sessions: Vi is the result of a promise that Riot Games Music made a year ago: to create new music that would be safe to stream and free to use,” the press release reads. “Something to help address a small part of the copyright pains seen from creators and streamers around the world.”

Riot Games Music says it plans to create more Sessions albums in the future. The album was developed in partnership with several musicians including Chromonicci, Junior State, Laxcity, and Tennyson. You can view the full tracklist below and use any of them in your streaming endeavors.

    I think you mean to be using a different term. There’s no such thing as “copyright free” music. Copyright protection begins the moment the music is recorded. Public domain music is copyright free, but this is usually 70 years after the death of the composer.

      So, if they are providing music by Beethoven and Mozart, that would be copyright free, right?
